With three races in the next five weeks, the 2019 K&N Pro Series West season is coming to a close.
The final push includes stops at Kern County Raceway Park in Bakersfield, California, as well as ISM Raceway in Phoenix to close it out. But before those, a trip to All American Speedway in Roseville, California, is in order for the West’s best.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR:
Can anybody catch Derek Kraus?
That’s the question we’ll be asking for the next few weeks, as the Stratford, Wisconsin, native holds a 40-point advantage in the championship standings. Given his results this season, that lead may be insurmountable. With only one finish outside the top 10 in 11 races, the teenager looks to be on track towards a championship in his third year competing in the K&N Pro Series West.
By virtue of his third-place finish at Meridian two weeks ago, Trevor Huddleston sits second in the standings, leapfrogging past Hailie Deegan. The two had an incident at Meridian, which saw Deegan sustain major damage.
Huddleston’s Sunrise Ford Racing teammate Jagger Jones led the most laps at Meridian and looked to be on his way to Victory Lane … until Kraus’ bump-and-run went awry and ended Jones’ day. With three races remaining in his rookie campaign, he’s hungrier than ever for a checkered flag.
Along with Kraus and Deegan for Bill McAnally Racing will be Brittney Zamora and newly-minted Derrick Doering, a local modified racer at All American who will be making his debut. He’s currently fourth in All American’s NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Division II Modified standings at the track with 1 win and four top-fives.
Coming off his fourth-place run, Josh Jackson will be in the field, along with Josh Fanopoulos’ sixth-place run. Off his first career top 10, Keith McGee will be back in action, as will Bridget Burgess.

CREW CHIEF HANDOUT: The starting field for the NAPA Auto Parts/ENEOS 150 is limited to 22 starters, including provisional positions. The first 18 drivers will secure starting positions based on qualifying for the NAPA Auto Parts/ENEOS 150. The remaining four spots will be awarded through the provisional process.
The number of groups for qualifying will be determined by NASCAR. Each group qualifying session will be five (5) minutes in duration and the fastest single lap speed of each vehicle will determine starting positions 1st through 18th. Adjustments or repairs may not be made on a vehicle after the vehicle enters the track to begin the qualifying session. Vehicles may not return to the track or make any further qualifying laps unless directed to do so by a NASCAR Official or in the event of a caution. If a vehicle returns to pit road, the vehicle’s qualifying attempt is complete. Once a vehicle’s qualifying attempt is complete the vehicle must proceed directly to the designated impound area once it enters pit road. In the event of a caution, all vehicles must exit the track. Vehicles that elect to continue must proceed directly to the re-entry area of pit road and stop to the outside of pit road. No adjustments or repairs may be made to any vehicle on pit road or in the re-entry area during a caution except the removal of tape on the grille opening only, once removed the reinstallation of tape will not be permitted.
Vehicles will be impounded after qualifying. Vehicles must qualify on race set up. Only minor adjustments will be permitted following qualifying (i.e. air pressure checked, tape removed). NASCAR Officials must oversee and authorize any and all work being done during this time period.
The NAPA Auto Parts/ENEOS 150 will be 150 laps (49.95 miles) and is to be run in one (1) segment.
The maximum tire allotment available for this event is as follows: Four (4) tires for practice, four (4) tires for qualifying and to begin the race for a total of eight (8) tires.
A team representative must designate qualifying and race tires to NASCAR Officials at the designated time.
